Good afternoon! Here’s the rest of Day 2 at Penang. I’ll let the pictures do the talking!
ok, I realize that I missed this photo out on the last post, so here it is!
same colour. :)
posing again. I’ve grown so tall over the 11 years that I have to squat like this. haha!
after that we went to Burma road for the 2 temples. But apparently, the Burmese temple was having some occasion and it was jam packed so we decided to go back the next day. so here, the other temple with the sleeping Buddha.
drove to Gurney drive before our lunch.
for lunch, we wanted to try the sister’s Char Kuay Teow at first, but they are closed, so we went to Lorong Selamat (off Macallister Road) to search for the charcoal Char Kuay Teow but they were closed also! thankfully they are a lot of stalls there. so we went down for another Char Kuay Teow instead. here’s sesame sotong (guess so) but I never tried. I hate sotongs.
Rojak! not very bad!
another picture of the sotong after we kacau-ed it.
Oh Jian (fried oyster, something like that). I hate oyster also, so I didnt touch it at all. Mom said it was so-so.
Oh Ge (yam). the sauce is dang yummy!
Har Mai Fun as we called here. They called it as Hokkien Mai Fun Mai Fun. okay, eldest sister said we have to repeat the mai fun if not they’ll mix mee and meehoon together. very nice!
Jeng jeng jeng! here’s the Char Kuay Teow. to be honest, I dont eat Char Kuay Teow. but when this food arrived at our table, hah! like what people say, things change, people change. lol. I ate a lot a lot of it and it tasted really good! not very oily and not so chao long like here. worth the wait!
looook! same as his signboard!
that’s how he operate the stall. write down the customer’s number on the egg so he will not skip/forget/whatever-reasons -slash-excuses-hawkers-always-tell-us.
then we went Penang Plaza and Penang Times Square. okay, so here, Penang’s shopping mall is…… haunted. well, haunted is not the right word but that’s what came up to my mind lol. the shops are very very less and they stuffs are very very expensive, some even more expensive than KL! anyway, I took the picture of this car because of the paint. oh yeah, next time Im gonna paint my car this colour ’cause I really hate those shiny shiny ones.
after roaming around those haunted malls we went to Jalan Abu Siti for the coconut! mm nice! and they even got drive thru service!
after dinner we had no where to go so we decided to head to Straits Quay. new place I guess. there’s not many people around there. but I really like the market place! some of the stuffs are expensive but will be nice to just look around. was raining again hence the backside of “Straits Quay”.
someone please do this in Kajang. I need a way to get rid of my stuffs and I need a way for cheap stuffs too!
back at the hotel, I found these. ridiculous isn’t it? who’s gonna sell at the price ONE RINGGIT AND TWENTY-SEVEN CENTS? or ONE RINGGIT AND SIX CENTS?
okay, abrupt end here. stay tuned for Charlie Brown’s Cafe. Ciao!
